Permanent makeup is gaining in popularity. Emphasizing beauty in this way is an excellent solution not only for busy women but also for those who don't feel confident doing makeup on their own. With micropigmentation, we can naturally emphasize beauty features, densify, fill in or correct the eyebrow and lip lines, and also save a lot of time every day. Nowadays, time is something we almost always lack, and by choosing permanent makeup, we spend much less time getting ready to go out.
Micropigmentation is also a good solution for all women who don't really know how to apply makeup to highlight their assets, choose the right lipstick or eyebrow shadow color, or how to tame unruly hairs and correct any gaps in them. Sometimes, however, what stops us from deciding on permanent makeup is the fear that the effects of such treatment will not look natural. We shouldn't worry about that. An experienced linergist will undoubtedly select the perfect dye shade and apply makeup that perfectly matches a particular beauty type.
Permanent makeup is undoubtedly a great convenience. After emphasizing the eyes, eyebrows, or lips, we can enjoy beautiful effects for a long time, and we are basically ready to go out at any moment. We also don't have to worry about visiting the sauna or swimming pool and smudged makeup after such activities. Many women appreciate the convenience that micropigmentation provides them every day. It is undeniable that appearance is essential for every woman, and we would all like to feel beautiful regardless of the situation. A pretty, well-groomed, and aesthetic appearance can also effectively boost self-esteem and eliminate burdensome complexes.
What is permanent makeup?
Permanent makeup is a good way to emphasize the eyes, lips, or eyebrows, thereby improving their shape and color. Performing micropigmentation itself resembles creating a tattoo. The procedure is carried out by a linergist and involves puncturing the skin with a needle and introducing the appropriate pigment. It should be remembered that permanent makeup should always be performed by a qualified person for this purpose, who has the necessary certificates. Before the procedure, the linergist also conducts a detailed interview with the client to exclude any contraindications for the makeup.
Unlike popular skin drawings, the effects of permanent makeup last from several months to several years. Factors such as the type and condition of the client's skin, the technique used, the dyes used in the procedure, health condition, and even supplements and cosmetics taken can influence the durability of micropigmentation. Before deciding on the procedure, make sure that the chosen salon has a good reputation.
How does healing progress after permanent makeup?
The healing process after micropigmentation is a very individual matter. The basis is, of course, proper care, thanks to which we can enjoy beautifully emphasized eyebrows, eyes, or lips for a long time. However, it should be remembered that during the healing of permanent makeup, certain skin reactions may appear. It's good to be prepared for them to avoid unnecessary stress. Expect irritation in the areas subjected to micropigmentation, redness, swelling, itching, and even slight pain and increased sensitivity than before.
A few days after the permanent makeup, scabs also appear, and this is entirely natural. However, the skin regenerates very quickly, and after about a week, they should no longer be visible. What's more, the effect is more intense in the first days after the micropigmentation, and it may seem a bit exaggerated. However, remember that the pigment gradually starts to fade, and the final color is visible about a month after the procedure. The full effect is usually visible after about 4 weeks when you can also see if repigmentation is needed.
What affects the color in permanent makeup?
We already know that the gradual change of color after micropigmentation is a natural phenomenon, but there are situations when it indicates a procedure performed incorrectly. The most common causes of discoloration or too rapid fading of the pigment include: the angle of pigmentation – the procedure should be done perpendicular to avoid inflammation and support faster healing and pigment setting, the depth of pigmentation – makeup done too shallowly risks pigment precipitation, while too deep leads to repigmentation and color change, area – pigment behaves differently in each place, and the area where permanent makeup is performed also directly affects its durability, and gender – women's epidermis is thinner, significantly affecting micropigmentation's durability.
Another issue is individual factors. They play a role in the durability of micropigmentation and avoiding all discolorations. These include skin type – with dry skin, the durability and shade of the pigment should proceed without problems, while for those with oily skin, there's an increased risk of faster pigment precipitation, age – it's easier to do perfect permanent makeup for younger women because their skin is firmer and has more collagen than older women. Mature clients also start to lose their natural firmness and tension, and the skin structure changes due to past illnesses or taken medications.
Additionally, the skin structure in the area subjected to micropigmentation plays a significant role. The previous performance of permanent makeup is also relevant. Sun exposure, care, taken medications, especially hormonal ones, as well as diseases such as psoriasis, vitiligo, or even undergone chemotherapy, also influence the procedure's durability. It is also essential to remember the skin color and its tone, as the pigment must be appropriately matched to it. The linergist should choose a dye for the complexion in a way that no discoloration will occur.
